Vanessa’s ultimate goal as a teacher is not only for students to master new material in academics, but to identify what they want for themselves in the future and help maximize their capabilities. She believes it is extremely important for students to have someone who they can depend on to help foster their interests and encourage them to persevere when things don’t go as planned. Vanessa hopes she can be this person for all of her students once she is leading a classroom.
